An Iraqi military intelligence officer was slain in a drive-by shooting on Saturday south of Baghdad, police said. Gunmen attacked 1st Lt. Hussein Jabir at 7:30 a.m. as he was leaving his home in downtown Diwaniyah, 130 kilometers (80 miles) south of Baghdad, police said. Also Saturday, US-led forces killed one person and detained nine other suspects in a raid on a militant hideout in Ramadi, west of Baghdad, the US military said. "Intelligence reports indicated terrorists with ties to the al-Qaida in Iraq network were operating in the targeted building," the military said in a statement.
